Any Suggestions? 67 mustang clutch swap over to cable kit?

Hi guys. I'm putting together the final assembly for my restore with my 67 fastback. 351W stroker motor and rebuilt original 4 speed. Has anyone converted their clutch fork over to the cable kit? Seems like that would be more efficient than the origin al set up. please share your thoughts with me for anyone who has done this or has a friend who has done this. walter.kroll@sprint.com thanks!

Cable....no, it stretches with age varying the engage/release points......yeah its cheap & easy & why the Japanese & Chinese car mfg's used them for years while the americans & germans used mechanical....yes the Japanese used hydraulic slaves too...which had issues especially with snow/salt conditions....mechanical is constant...the rest, well, hydraulic would be 2nd best if you are looking for more comfort.

If you have no issues with the stock set up why change. But if you do look into Mustangsteve.com he has a nice kit with different levels of completion. Im using it now after switching from C4 auto to T5 5 speed it has an adjustable cable at the top of the firewall and the pedal piviots on needle bearings not cheep plastic bushings

Also if you use a diaphragm clutch disc the cable is less likely to stretch. 4000 miles and still going strong
